Osteoporosis Risks

Work in progress:

If left untreated having KS or HH will leave a person at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis or "brittle-bones".

The hormones that are missing or at a low level with KS are essential to develop strong healthy bones.

It is suggested that people with KS or HH should have a bone density (DEXA) scan at least every 5 years to ensure that they are not at an increased risk.
